To Cover or not to Cover

Sometimes covers are better than originals. Sometimes they completely ruin them. Sometimes they're not bad, but the strip the original of the magic it was written with.

Any thoughts on which one this is?

The original wins hands down for me. I think the 80s vibe and the rawness of the live performance adds to the magic. Glen and Marketa just sucked some of the life force out of the song.

Have you heard this?

One of my favourite covers. So much power. Bob Dylan songs always sound better when they are sung by someone else.
